Bonus - Otakon 2009 Con Report

It's been entirely too long since we've done any con reports. In fact, we owe about a year's worth. But here's our report for Otakon 2009 while it's still fresh in our minds. Warning: in order to release this "on time," we opted to more or less release the audio unedited. It's rougher than we'd like.

Read our Otaku USA con reports for Otakon 2009, too! Daryl's is here and Clarissa's is here.

Anime World Order Show # 81b - Tickle Me Pink Elmo Would've Prevented Cannibalism

Show 81 concludes with Daryl's review of Kekko Kamen and Clarissa's review of Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman. Along with the post-Anime Expo news, can you really call it the second half of a podcast when it's over 2 hours long? WE CAN!

Full show notes with pictures and stuff later. Maybe. It's nearly 2:00 AM, already.

Let's News! (0:00 - 53:41)
Notes forthcoming, much like last week's episode which is still listed as "notes forthcoming." If only one of us had some sort of online repository full of links and subject material for this segment that could be easily pasted into these spaces...

Review: Kekko Kamen (53:41 - 1:26:41)
Go Nagai? Restraining himself? H...holding back?! GODDAMMIT WHERE THE HELL IS JACK?! Reports suggest his knife is made of Super Alloy Z, but this is contradicted by the fact that it breaks all the time and he just summons forth a new one via the power of VIOLENCE~!. In any case, Kekko Kamen is a textbook example of how far we've come [fallen...?] over the last 30 years. Can there even truly BE screenshots of this, either of Kekko Kamen herself or the villains? Maybe we'll just post the English translated lyrics to the theme song.

Review: Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman (1:26:41 - 1:57:08)
Everything you need to know about this cartoon is succinctly encapsulated within its title. But maybe we should post some pictures of it anyway.

Buddha wants to make one lucky woman a superhero!

Sadly, this mostly involves wearing a really unfortunate outfit. And lots of butts. Buichi Terasawa and Sir Mix-a-Lot would both be proud.

Butt-related persecution, even!

It also involves stupidly ripped pretty boys.

Lesbian subtext.

And lots of blatant copyright infringement.

Promo: Anime Hell (1:57:08 - 1:58:06)
The Sounds of Hell involve Isaac Hayes and Yaphet Kotto. Including a promo for the Greatest Movie EVER! podcast to promote Daryl's guest appearance to discuss Ninja III: The Domination was considered, but ninja don't MAKE sound.

Closing (1:58:06 - 2:12:13)
Next time, all that remains on the "one person recommends titles for everyone else" train is Clarissa. She has opted to do unto others as was done unto her. It's a gamble. A very risky gamble. But also a manly gamble. Manly enough to the point that it's probably really gay. But if you can get past the fact that the gamble is so gay they have their pants zipped down a lot, you'd see it was awesome. What we're trying to say here is that Clarissa's reviewing One Outs next time. As for Daryl and Gerald? THAT IS CLASSIFIED (for the next few hours). Be on the lookout: there's a deadly stinger at the end of all this.

Anime World Order Show # 81a - Rei Fukai, You Are Worse Than Michael Jordan

The deadly experiment continues! This time it's Gerald's turn to pick the titles for everyone to review. He's chosen Kekko Kamen for Daryl and Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman for Clarissa. But he's taken the heavy burden of Yukikaze upon himself.

Introduction (0:00 - 21:09)
Gerald was not met with much approval over his review of Kemonozume last episode. Daryl reiterates why we'll never be popular on the Internet by pointing out our lack of a quantitative value system, and Clarissa confesses to not knowing much about Takarazuka revue on account that she doesn't feel like spending $300 on one DVD. 3 emails down! That leaves 436 in the Inbox.

Let's News! (21:09 - 43:01)
Notes forthcoming. But we were probably responding to what Egan Loo, One Man Pillar of Internet Anime Fandom, posted on www.animenewsnetwork.com. Also, at some point we answer an email from a pedophile about the lack of availability of Giant Robo OST 5.

Review: Yukikaze (43:01 - 1:33:32)
Notes and perhaps screenshots forthcoming, but really. All you need to know about this is the following: Gonzo made it.

The remaining reviews are already recorded and edited. But hey, we'll have to talk about whatever happens at Anime Expo anyway. We'll include them with that.
